Oh dear. One of my very favorite comic actors, Alex Karras, is on the roof and is not coming down. His family has been losing him bit by bit, but it seems the poor guy is, as one friend of his said, “in transition.”
Karras is probably best known as the dad from Webster, or maybe Mongo in Blazing Saddles, but to me, he’ll always be the closeted, then freed, bodyguard from Victor Victoria. God, how I love Victor Victoria.
As “Squash” Bernstein said to King Marchand:
Animated GIF scrounged from Strange how you know inside me.
Very sad that he passed away this morning. He broke ground for athletes as actors and his performance in “Victor/Victoria” is uncanny.
Awww….Good night, sweet prince indeed!
So sad. 😦 They did a little tribute to him last night during the game.
